I have an MA in Education and love helping grow confidence

With my English students, I specialize in teaching essay structure and revision. I walk students through the brainstorming and drafting process in a low-stress way that allows them to get their ideas on the page. Once we know what they want to write about, we dive into essay structure. I make sure that students understand why essays are formed with such a strict set of components, and we make an outline to ensure that every part of their essay is as good as it can be. With pre-writing, the ac... [more]

Your Friendly Neighborhood Tutor for Math and Writing

Classic literature presents opportunities for deep learning--and enjoyment. I enjoy working with students to help them engage with stories and books. I have a master's degree in Comparative Literature and a bachelor's degree in English Literature, and I have experience giving lessons in both these subjects. I've tutored on and off throughout my life, beginning in college, and I always seem to come back to it. I've tutored calculus, writing, elementary reading, middle school math, and French. When I was a 6th-grade teacher, I got a lot out of working with students one on one because I was ab [more]

Humanities including History, Literature, and Writing

Both my master's degree and the current MFA program I will complete in 2012 focused on literature and writing. The MFA, a culminating degree for Creative Writing in the United States, has included a large component of essay and thesis work. To date, I have completed two theses involving literature. As a professional writer, my approach to literature and literary analysis is broad.
